About The Dog Shed

Hi, I'm Katy and i am the very proud owner of The Dog Shed. I have been around dogs my entire life and always dreamed to work with animals. In 2016/17 i took the plunge to follow my dreams and embarked on the most exciting journey to become a qualified Dog Groomer.

Over 2 years worth of studying and several courses later i am very proud to say i am a fully qualified groomer, gaining my City and Guilds Level 2 dog grooming assistant and Level 3 dog stylist full diploma, passing with distinctions across the board for both. Alongside this i am always attending seminars and shows in order to keep up to date with the latest trends and enhance my skills wherever possible, i never stop learning!

Alongside my Dog Grooming qualifications one of my biggest achievements to date has been embarking on my teaching career. I now split my time between The Dog Shed and being a Dog Grooming Lecturer and instructor. Teaching students is something that i absolutely love and seeing their skills and passion grow has been extremely rewarding. I have recently trained and qualified for my Level 3 education and training qualification and will soon be launching The Dog Shed Academy from my salon in Charlwood for new students in 2021.

Over the last 2 years i have also entered the world of competitive grooming. After attending our first show with my own Cocker Spaniel Dog, i could not have been happier to have come 3rd in a very large and tough class. I am now the proud owner of lots of rosettes and a beautiful trophy which takes pride of place in my salon. I cannot wait to see where our competing journey take us.

The Dog Shed is  fully equipped with state of the art equipment and is based in an accessible and convenient location. In addition to being fully qualified i am also fully insured and take pride in adhering to all laws and legislation's including the animal welfare act. I have clients travel to me from Crawley, Horley, Rusper, Newdigate, Leigh, Dorking, Reigate and beyond as well as those local to Gatwick and Charlwood as i am situated nicely on the Surrey and Sussex borders. With a purpose built salon, free accessible parking and flexible appointment times why not book your dog in today and see exactly why my clients love The Dog Shed.

I am proud to be able to work with dogs on a 1-1 basis so you can be assured your dog will get the attention it deserves. I work in a very calm manner and am on hand at all times to provide reassuring cuddles should it be required! I love all the dogs as if they were my own so call now to book your beloved dog in for a well deserved pamper!
